This client sends these pdfs to customers so maybe there are some annotations going on in there somewhere. But what exactly is an annotation and how would i know if the pdf contains them? I know that saving as an optimized pdf can flush em out though.

Thanks abc, not sure if you would find anything though. I have tried to recreate the problem but it doesn’t happen. Maybe I should optimize each pdf to clean them up right from the beginning? I couldn’t send you it now, i am gone for the weekend. :drunk3:p

There are a few things you can try. Flatten annotations, checking for missing glyphs etc.
If you have a copy of the PDF still you can send it to me.
In my last week now at Enfocus, so I have a little time on my hands!

Don't worry...when I retire all of these vendors will fix all of their issues and you'll never see another problem.

I've seen whole chunks of a pdf disappear when the moment comes when the picture updates. That's why I am really thinking that's the problem. And for years we've had the "update picture after editing - ACROBAT CRASH" scenario which has never gone away so maybe it's some "ghost" in the system.

Hail to Joe but please don't get smug in your final 44 days. (or so).  ;D

The rip is ok, the objects and or fonts disappear right before your eyes (if you catch it) and it's missing in the single pdf that goes into imposition.

OK now that is different than what I thought you meant which was the type was still in the PDF but the RIP dropped it.

Early on in the game when the Edit object tool was new there was a lot of times you would get unexpected results when saving back into the PDF. I don't see that anymore.

Also there is nothing wrong with the Pitstop Curve tool. I love it and use it often. The one thing it will do sometimes is if you do a curve and forget to hit the apply button it will sometimes crash Acrobat when you try to move to do something else.

One of the deadliest things in Prepress is letting that Magic Mouse get away from you and it has happened to me more than once of it deleting something or moving something with a wayward swipe and drag. Also related to the Magic Mouse is getting in a hurry to "Edit Image" with the select object tool and when you right click and try to move down to "Edit Image" just a small wayward click on the "Delete Clip" menu choice can get you too. Been there...done that.

If the issue is caused by image editing in Acrobat, shouldn't this be addressed by Adobe? Or are there just not enough of us experiencing this to cause a change? (I know what you are going to say Joe).

You should do this. I had success getting them to bring back the SHIFT+Click to select multiple objects with Pitstop. It was such a pleasant experience I would highly recommend you venture down this path. :sarcasm:

Google fonts seem to be in Adobe Creative Cloud now. Had a few jobs lately that used fonts and looked on Adobe and noticed they were Google fonts. How nice. An actual good thing.

Sorry, the error did not occur many times, just on the one line.

I would contact the rip vendor and log a case.
I’m seeing all sorts of new font issues with Canva, Google fonts, Opentype SVG fonts etc.

Just had some with the Indigos dropping Type 3 fonts, so we have a fix for that now in PitStop.
Global Graphics also fixed it in the rip. So it’s important to report them, or nothing happens!!

Yes, we had an issue with Google fonts as well. Same customer, I just told them never to use Google fonts and we got out of that one. This font that dropped out occurred many times on many flyers with no issue. Just one line, a small heading above a photo, dropped out.
